Ashley Zavala began coaching volleyball at Grace in 2020. She played four years of varsity volleyball in high school at Calvary Christian and Forrest City High School. Ashley also played college volleyball at UCA in Conway, AR, and has coached three seasons prior to coming to Grace. She is going to school to become a Physical Therapist and is married to the permanently tall and hairy Nick Zavala, who is the Grace Community Church HS Grace Student Ministry Pastor at the Old Jacksonville location. They moved here from California in 2019, and have no children, one dog, and whatever other dog, cat, or bunny that is lost in their neighborhood that needs food until they can find its owner. (Currently a cat they call Yoda.)
